Vue.js 2 and Bootstrap 4 Web Development

Overview of this book

In this book, we will build a full stack web application right from scratch up to its deployment. We will start by building a small introduction application and then proceed to the creation of a fully functional, dynamic responsive web application called ProFitOro. In this application, we will build a Pomodoro timer combined with office workouts. Besides the Pomodoro timer and ProFitOro workouts will enable authentication and collaborative content management. We will explore topics such as Vue reactive data binding, reusable components, routing, and Vuex store along with its state, actions, mutations, and getters. We will create Vue applications using both webpack and Nuxt.js templates while exploring cool hot Nuxt.js features such as code splitting and server-side rendering. We will use Jest to test this application, and we will even revive some trigonometry from our secondary school! While developing the app, you will go through the new grid system of Bootstrap 4 along with Vue.js’ directives. We will connect Vuex store to the Firebase real-time database, data storage, and authentication APIs and use this data later inside the application’s reactive components. Finally, we will quickly deploy our application using the Firebase hosting mechanism.

In this chapter, we followed a tutorial where we have developed a single-page application from scratch. We used the Vue.js framework to structure our application, the Bootstrap framework to apply style to it, and the Firebase platform to manage the application's persistence layer and hosting.

In spite of being able to achieve a considerable result (a fully functional deployed application), we did everything without a deep understanding of what is going on behind the scenes. The tutorial didn't explain what Vue.js, Bootstrap, or Firebase was. We just took it for granted.

In the next chapter, we will understand the underlying technologies in detail. We will do the following:

  • Take a closer look at the Vue.js framework, starting from a basic understanding and then covering topics such as directives, data binding, components, routing, and so on

  • Have a deeper look at the Bootstrap framework, and check what is possible to achieve using it and how to do it

  • Get to know the Firebase platform better; we'll gain some basic understanding about it and go through more complex topics such as data storage or functions

  • Check out different techniques to use these three different projects to add simplicity, power, and flexibility to our applications
